PHILADELPHIA SONGWRITERS PROJECT
March 1, 2011

The Philadelphia Songwriters Project has been a dynamic and impactful force on the landscape of the Philadelphia area music community for many years. They have hosted educational events, networking events, instructional events, performance events, showcase events, charity events...... So many people have benefited from their work.

They have welcomed individuals with varying levels of musical intelligence and experience, of varying ages, from all musical genres. They have provided a forum for members of these communities to share their knowledge and create stronger communities.

The arts have suffered terribly in recent years, and this organization has been no exception. They do good work, with great integrity and respect for the art and the artists.

It is hard to make suggestions of this kind with the knowledge that there are severe budgetary restraints. In a perfect world, this organization would have an office and performance space, be open for business 7 days a week, and would host events that are both genre specific and multi-genre several times a month.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I volunteered as a Board member, I was a judge at a songwriting contest, and I participated, in general.
